The winner was the Grassy Lake Snotel Site in the southwestern portion of Yellowstone NP with 6 feet!

While still below normal the storms have made a large impact on the big snow deficit of just a week ago as can be seen by the graphs below.

Of more interest to Star Valley would be the Willow Creek Snotel graphs.

While still below normal, with the change in the storm track the outlook for a favorable water year is much improved.
